Editor's Choice 2007

Our annual guide to photography's best new products.



It happens every year, but it's worth repeating that there are more products and product categories than ever in this year's Editor's Choice. All that coverage required a bigger-than-ever team of experts. In addition to regular AP contributors Jonathan Barkey, Aimee Baldridge, Steve Pollock, and Jack Howard, the group included several trusted colleagues from Popular Photography & Imaging, including Dan Richards, Debbie Grossman, and Pete Kolonia. Their combined authority makes this year's Editor's Choice the go-to guide for buying your photo equipment.

On the following pages you can read up about everything from the top digital SLRs and lenses to the latest cellphones, which now account for more cameras than any other device. In addition to our usual full-scale review of digital compact cameras, still booming even with the advent of the $500 D-SLR, you'll find tripods, digital storage devices, computers, and camera bags -- everything you need to make better pictures.
